LSU gymnastics No.4 in new rankings

Posted: Updated:

BATON ROUGE – For the fourth straight week the LSU gymnastics team moved up one spot in the GymInfo rankings as the Tigers checked in at No. 4 in the updated standings released Monday.

LSU (9-3, 5-2 SEC) jumped Alabama to move to fourth with a 196.965 regional qualifying score (RQS), the highest ranking for the Tigers since March 16, 2009 when LSU was also fourth.

In the team event standings, LSU remained No. 1 on floor with a 49.410 RQS, and the Tigers held steady at No. 2 on vault with a 49.430 RQS. LSU moved up two spots to No. 6 nationally on bars with a 49.215 RQS, and the Tigers ranked 18th on beam at 48.925.

Rheagan Courville is No. 4 nationally in the all-around with a 39.480 RQS, and she is No. 4 on vault at 9.915, No. 11 on floor at 9.895 and No. 16 on beam at 9.870.

Lloimincia Hall is ranked No. 2 on floor with a 9.925 RQS, and Jessica Savona is ranked No. 21 on floor with a 9.885 RQS.

Sarie Morrison is No. 4 on bars with a 9.910 RQS. She leads the team on vault with a 9.915 season average, but she is not eligible to appear in the rankings because she has not vaulted in enough meets to acquire a regional qualifying score.

Florida moved back into the top spot in the rankings with a 197.440 RQS while Oklahoma slipped to No. 2 at 197.410. Michigan remained third at 197.080, LSU jumped to fourth (196.965) and Alabama fell one spot to fifth (196.910). UCLA (196.765), Utah (196.740), Georgia (196.725), Stanford (196.590) and Oregon State (196.565) round out the top 10.

LSU will square off against No. 5 Alabama in a top-5 match-up at 7 p.m. CT Friday in the Sixth Annual Etta James Memorial Meet to support former LSU football player Bradie James' Foundation 56 and the fight against breast cancer.

Tickets are available at a cost of $1 at www.LSUtix.net, by calling the LSU ticket office at 225-578-2184 or in person on the first floor of the athletic administration building.
